The residence halls and KE apartments remain open during Thanksgiving break. However, students will need to notify us of the nights they will be on campus. A form will be available in October. There is no additional cost for Thanksgiving Break.

The residence halls close for Christmas break but the KE apartments remain open. Break housing for students in the residence halls is available for an additional fee. More information about 2023 costs and placement details will be available in November.

    • Placement Details

      For the spring 2023 term, both KE Apartment residents and dorm students will have the opportunity to remain in their semester housing assignments for spring break. Although both dorm and KE apartment students will not need to move housing for spring break, those needing housing will be required to register to stay on campus.

    • Cost and fees

      Registration closes on February 15. Any late registrations will be charged a $50 fee.

      • Registration for both KE residents and dorms students is required.
      • Because the dorms are traditionally closed during spring break, dorm students requesting to stay on campus will be charged $25 per night or $125 for the whole break.
      • KE apartment residents will not be changed an extra break housing fee but need to register in order to maintain card access to KE apartment buildings.
      • Note: There will be a $100 fine (plus the nightly charge of $25 for dorm students) to anyone who remains on campus without registration. All spring break housing fees will be charge to your account after the break has ended.
    • Dining Halls

      The dining halls will be closed during spring break. Students are encouraged to explore off campus dining options including food and grocery delivery services.

    • Placement Details

      The residence halls will be closed during summer break, therefore all students requiring housing will be staying in the Knollcrest East Apartments. Due to the high demand for housing, students are not guaranteed a single room apartment and may be placed with apartment-mates and roommates at any point throughout the summer.

      The dining halls will be closed during summer break. Each KE apartment is equipped with a full kitchen to store and prepare food. Cooking utensils are not provided per apartment but can be borrowed via check-out at the KE front desk.
